Campus Recreation houses and advises six major recreation and conservation programs: Intramurals, Outdoor Recreation Center, Utah Conservation Corps, Informal Recreation, Club Sports, and Recreation Instruction Program. These programs are run by professionals, students and volunteers. Campus Recreation sponsors numerous events, activities, and volunteer service projects throughout the year, including the following:


Intramural sports include basketball, racquetball, table tennis, badminton, soccer, volleyball, softball, and many more. The rejuvenation resulting from participating in intramurals is a crucial part of the college experience.

Outdoor Recreation Center (ORC)

The ORC is one of the nation’s premier university outdoor education and leadership programs serving students and the public through diverse educational programs and comprehensive rental services. The ORC provides rigorous experiential learning experiences fostering independent problem solving, leadership, and communication skills. It also promotes academic excellence, physical and personal development, and responsible involvement and service in the outdoors.

Informal Recreation

The HPER and Fieldhouse facilities, including pools, weight rooms, track, and fitness center, are areas where participants can engage in self-directed exercise.

Club Sports

Club sports are for students who wish to play in a competitive team environment at a high level. Some clubs are well-established and require tryouts. There are 16 club sports to choose from, including (but not limited to) ballroom dance, soccer, ultimate frisbee, rodeo, and lacrosse.

Recreation Instruction Program (RIP)

The RIP program offers various instructional programs fostering awareness of different cultures and their lifestyles. A few examples of Campus Recreation’s classes are yoga, aikido, and karate.
